Kubernetes Security Checklist and Assorted News from RSA

8 Mar 2019 5:00pm, by

Welcome to The New Stack Context podcast, where we discuss the latest news and The New Stack sponsor activities. This week, in a nod to the RSA Conference that was held this week, we spoke to Jim Bugwadia, CEO of Nirmata, about what your Kubernetes security checklist is probably missing.

Bugwadia wrote a post for The New Stack in which he shares the security model Nirmata uses to guide its enterprise customers with Kubernetes adoption. Nirmata is a DevOps platform for containerized application deployments and is a sponsor of The New Stack. In the second half of the show, we review our other podcast and stories for the week, including some of the news coming out of RSA, such as Twistlock’s new release that promises container native security for VMs as well as Scytale’s new SPIFFE-based Service Identity Management tool.

Libby Clark, The New Stack editorial director hosted this episode, with assistance from Joab Jackson, TNS managing editor, and Alex Williams, co-founder and editor-in-chief at The New Stack.
